Peter was a warm, spirited and charismatic person with many great passions and interests including a love of athletics, travel, and military history. He will be remembered by many for the boundless energy he gave to coaching amateur sport which was an interest close to his heart.

Peter was a lawyer by profession and brought wise counsel to his work and business connections. He was highly regarded and loved by peers and friends throughout his life.
